AdventuRoj Surigao del Sur Adventure

Yet another outdated post of mine. Back when I wasn’t still a blogger, not even in possession of my baby Nikon D3000 DSLR. So  pardon me if my shots here aren’t as great. But anyway an adventure is an adventure no matter what, so here goes my Surigao adventure.

The Plan

I had always wanted to visit Surigao del Sur but with no one to accompany me, this hadn’t been realized. Not until last year when my roomate and friend invited me over to their company’s outdoor trip. The trip was scheduled on August 28-29, 2011. Destination is at Surigao del Sur, with the Enchanted River and Hinatuan Falls as the main courses.

What tempted me even more to come was that because the trip will be on a budget one. My friend, along with her co workers (of which I know no one. Oops. I haven’t thought of that) do know someone from Surigao who will host them (or us). That alone could already be big savings! Plus the vehicle that will be used will also belong to one of their other co worker who also lives at Surigao. Talk about cost cutting huh? 🙂 Continue reading

Little Niagara Falls

Dubbed as the “Little Niagara of the Philippines,” Tinuy-an Falls is a spectacular three-tiered falls (there is a fourth hidden from view) about 55 meters high and a breathtaking width of 95 meters, said to be the widest in the country. Centuries old amazing giant trees, ferns and vines in a thick rainforest envelop your ride through thick forested hills that enclose the falls. Islets are on the swimming ground, with slippery logs where you can cross for a good view, plus multi-layered stones as pathways. Continue reading
